In an official statement, Syfy confirmed that the superheroes-meet-real-world TV series “Alphas” will not be renewed for a third season:
“Syfy has decided not to renew Alphas for a third season. We’ve been proud to present this entertaining, high-quality series for two seasons and to work with an incredible ensemble of talented actors, producers and creatives as well as our partners at BermanBraun Television. We’d like to thank the show’s dedicated regular viewers for their tremendous support.”
“Alphas” was co-created by “X-Men: The Last Stand” screenwriter Zak Penn, and, much like the X-franchise, featured ordinary people with strange powers. Debuting on 2011, the show wrapped up its second season in October of last year.
Syfy is not out of the original scripted TV series race, however, still having “Being Human,” “Lost Girl,” and “Continuum” on its schedule — as well as “Defiance” launching in April.
